Imagine how excited we were to find out that the World Poker Tour’s season-ending championship will for the first time ever be held at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City, New Jersey and it’s going to be sponsored by partypoker!
WPT President Adam Pliska remarked “The partnership of WPT, PartyPoker, and Borgata brings together three of the most respected names in poker, and we look forward to making the World Championship more impressive than ever before.”
But what we’re more excited about though is the thought of Mad Marvin Rettenmaier winning it again! You might remember how last time around he crushed the field and won the event as well as $1,196,858!
